9:30pm
months ago. we have about 40% less energy in the sun partly because the day is shorter and also the sun angle is more oblique but it won't be blistering and uncomfortable. it will be warm though, and tonight is remarkably washg warm, and in fact, the warm front is bringing the heat in. check this out, these clouds are the ones that produced the thunderstorms that came through parts the area . at one point this afternoon we were getting 400 cloud to ground lightning strokes around lunch hour. in fact, our pilot friend who flies out of wakigan. he was at 49,000 feet towering out looking at those cumulus. thanks for that, and thanks mother nature for clearing the skies late today and pushing out the rains and for what will be a windy day tomorrow. however, we also have a severe
9:31pm
weather risk. we'll tell you about that in a moment. woe we showed you the hazy sunshine. glennco hit 70 and as you headed south and west of chicago, it was 85 in oswego, and it's 72 tonight with southerly winds starting to pick up at o'hare, 76 mid way, sfeks oswego, and there are a lot of dew points around the metro area flirting with the 70 degree mark so the area has grown humid, and that will fuel the thunderstorms exploding tonight in the plains states. that's the south suburban view. this is a look in missouri where it's 77 now but they had a 95 degree high. in illinois, it was 92. it was 92 at champagne today and 90 at spring field. this big hot air dome is starting to work on a cold front coming into the area. look at these thunderstorms, and
9:32pm
they tower over 40,000 feet tall in south dakota, back into nebraska. they've been hail producers up to this point, but this is the little disturbance that's going to come our way at the point of peak heating or just beyond it tomorrow evening. we'll have an energetic atmosphere, almost an inch and 3/4 of evaporated moisture and upwelling air into the jet stream where thunderstorm tops can take the wind energy to the surface as wind gusts, so it looks like kind of a wild evening perhaps for parts of the metro area tomorrow where we're outlooked for severe weather. these are temperatures around the area tonight and here are the highs today. you know, we only checked about 1% of our 90s occurred from this day forward, and yet we're going to apparently have two shots of them at 90. if we don't hit them, we'll get close to them as we look at the cool air spilling over the weekend coming up. the two shots will be tomorrow and one again on thursday.
9:33pm
at this hour, it's still 77 peeria, 87 st. louis. look at the temperature increases. not often can we show you a map like this where readings are 20 degrees warmer than 24 hours ago. the dew points are creeping into the humid mid-60 degree territory with this ripple in the jet stream coming along and going to park itself right over us later in the day tomorrow, about the time the front hits. everything seems to be running on all cylinders, the severe weather threat does, and we'll have to watch it closely. humid 71%, dew point 65, and the water temperature at 69 degrees, moderate values of mold spores and weed pollen across the area, and frost and freeze warnings on either coast in new england and out west, but there's the slight risk of thunderstorms in a fairly compact area. here's how our model handles the evolution of the atmosphere in
9:34pm
the next 36 hours. see the partly cloud cloud y to sunny skies tomorrow. and these are expected to press east ward into chicago tomorrow evening. and those won't be the last thunderstorms of the week. we're going to sit right near a demarcation line where cool and warm air fight it out. the warm air will win time and again. the cool front that makes its way tomorrow gets to about this area and turns around back north again on wednesday so on wednesday we're back into warm air into the 90s, and the weekend turns cool. low temperatures tonight 68 to 72. nothing oppressive about this humidity, it just feels warmer. partly cloudy in the afternoon tomorrow and strong thunderstorms possible in the evening.
9:35pm
high tomorrow near 90 and down to 68 with bearably cloudy skies, scattered showers and storms tomorrow night. those could be heavier early in the neat. wednesday morning, better chance of storms in the afternoon, and again, all hours not rainy but looks like we'll get up to 83 degrees again. after a month that started cool, it looks like we're making up for lost ground. >> it's going to be september 21 tomorrow right? and it's going to be 90. >> autumn begins officially wednesday night. how about that. >> thank you, tom. partying with a purp . wgntv.com was at the walk out for cancer tonight. it was four charity and is two bands at the hard rock. all the tickets going to cancer prevention and research. before deana left tonight, she filed a medical report on an
